Van Aken Blvd Reconfiguration Starts April 1

The reconfiguration of Van Aken Boulevard, Chagrin Boulevard, Northfield Road, and the Warrensville Center Road intersections in Shaker Heights will begin Tuesday, April 1, 2014. The Warrensville/Van Aken/Chagrin intersection, where six roads now converge, has long been the bane of area drivers. The reconfiguration will create a standard four-way intersection, reducing wait times, confusion and congestion. The reconfiguration will also dead end Northfield Road just past Highland Hills and create a new connecting street from Northfield Road to Warrensville Center, just past the Shaker House in Highland Hills. This project is slated to last approximately two years. For more information, please visit
